The Bastich top podcast post

Listen to podcast

People say that only 1% of all the podcasts out there is good (hint: something that won't make you smash your head on the wall) and the rest of them are just noise. They're right, that's why I'm here to help you by listing what my nominations will be (My top podcast list, if you will) if there ever will be a podcast awards. The podcasts I've listed will of course be in relation to the geeky theme of this site. Hence the categories for my nominations will be for comic books, technology, and video games.

If you don't know what a podcast is let me quote Cnet's explanation:

In a nutshell, podcasting is the relatively new phenomenon of publishing media files--usually MP3s--so that they are available for download to anybody who subscribes to them. A typical podcast is a talk radio show, recorded so that you can listen to it when it's convenient for you.
Using one of the many free podcast aggregation/reader applications, such as iPodderX, iPodder (for Mac, Windows, and Linux!), or the handy podcast features in iTunes, you can subscribe to any of thousands of podcasts.
Creating your own podcast involves recording your show in MP3. Publishing involves creating an RSS feed.

Here's my top podcast list :

First category is for comic book podcasts. And the nominees:
1. Comicology podcast - A guy makes a no-frills and simple comic podcast that is clear and direct to the point.

2. Comic News Insider - News, previews, reviews, and comic book evangelization.

3. Comic Geek Speak - A bunch of guys talking about anything and everything about comics.

Second category is for technology podcasts. And the nominees:
1. Buzz Out Loud - A daily tech podcast.

2. This Week in Tech - A weekly tech show by THE Leo Laporte.

3. Diggnation - Two guys poking drunken fun about off-beat tech news in Digg.

Third and last category is for video games. And the nominees are:
1. Video Game Show - Gamers on high-caffeine diet talk about games.

2. PCGamer podcast - Editors of PCGamer magazine kicks back for a relaxing chat about gaming.

And there you have it, just some short description for each show 'coz I definitely want to review some of them in depth in the near future.
